From the moment I arrived, warmth enveloped me, Bali-style. The Tridatu Balinese bracelet they gave me wasn't just a gift; it symbolized the harmony that fills every corner of this resort.

Walking through the lobby, I was struck by its simplicity, yet elegance. The views of rice terraces were breathtaking, and I felt all my tension melt away.

What sets Chapung Sebali apart isn't just its stunning setting; it's their unwavering commitment to sustainability.

From recycled materials to eco-conscious initiatives, every aspect reflects their dedication. It's evident in the seamless fusion of Danish and Balinese architectural styles, curated meticulously by the owner, Mr. Niki Nasr. His journey from venturing into furniture and interior design in 2005 to bringing Chapung Sebali to life, speaks volumes about his passion for aesthetics and sustainability.

Sipping my morning coffee at the Jungle Fish restaurant, I marveled at the blend of Scandinavian elegance and tropical tranquility. The resort's design, with its clean lines and natural materials, evokes calmness. Each villa was carefully crafted with airy designs and modern chic styling, using materials like wood, volcanic rock, bamboo, and marble, creating a unique and inviting space.

The best time to book

Book Early for Peak Season: If you plan to visit Chapung Sebali during the peak tourist season, which typically coincides with the dry season in July and August, as well as December, it's advisable to book well in advance.


Consider Shoulder Seasons: The months just before or after the peak tourist season, known as the shoulder seasons (April, June, and January through February), often offer lower rates and fewer crowds while still enjoying relatively good weather.


Look for Midweek Deals: Most resorts may offer lower rates during weekdays compared to weekends, especially if you're flexible with your travel dates. Consider booking your stay from Sunday to Thursday to take advantage of midweek deals and discounts.


Check for Last-Minute Deals: While booking early is generally recommended, sometimes resorts also offer last-minute deals to fill remaining rooms. If you're flexible with your travel dates and willing to take a chance, you might find discounted rates by booking closer to your desired travel dates.

Best weather months to visit

The best weather months to visit Ubud, including the Keliki and Tegalalang areas, are typically during the dry season, which spans from April to October. Within this period, the months of May to September are often considered the optimal time to visit due to generally clear skies, lower humidity, and minimal rainfall.

Here's a breakdown of the weather conditions you can expect during different months:

May: May marks the beginning of the dry season, with pleasant temperatures and relatively low rainfall. It's an excellent time to visit Ubud and explore the Keliki and Tegalalang areas.

June to August: These months are usually the driest and most popular for tourism. You can expect sunny days, comfortable temperatures, and minimal rainfall, making it ideal for outdoor activities and sightseeing.

September: September is still part of the dry season, offering similar weather conditions to June to August. It's a great time to visit if you prefer slightly fewer crowds compared to the peak tourist months.
